The Washington Capitals entered Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio to faceoff against the Blue Jackets in their barn for the first time since that Caps series clinching win in round one of the playoffs last season. That seems like forever ago, it’s a new day (yes it is) in Columbus, lets see how the boys would fair in this one.
The good guys jumped out to a huge lead, getting goals from Brett Connolly, Dmitrij Jaskin, and Alex Ovechkin all unanswered by Columbus, meaning they took a 3-0 lead into our first break of the night. I got nothing for you from the second.
Travis Boyd’s first NHL goal made it 4-0!
Caps beat Blue Jackets 4-0!
Now has a point in all 17 of the Caps' wins. https://t.co/fGUU5u5hW4

The Caps controlled the high scoring areas the entire game and in doing so won the battle to keep themselves perched atop the NHL’s Metropolitan Division. Next up for the Caps is a return to Capital One Center on Tuesday night to greet Mike Green’s Detroit Red Wings.
